Ayaat (verses) from Quran, the holy book of Islam, decorate the tomb of the Sufi saint, Sheikh Salim Chishti. The tomb, built in 1572, is located in the fort of Fatehpur Sikri, India. Islam forbids any religious icons and deities and Quran is considered the true word of God (Allah). That is why in Islamic architecture, usually the verses from Quran in Calligraphy patterns adorn and decorate architectural structures. These calligraphic patterns can be anywhere from intricate patterns that look like flowers to massive multi-storeyed continues abstract designs with interlinked lines forming various verses from the Quran.
